    Shooting simulator

    I had not come across this before - but it is really pretty cool. You need to read up on the useage method and then experiment a bit - after a while it becomes clearer and then a lotta fun to use.

    Apparently this is not available all the time but hopefully will be up if you check it out. I tried the 15 yd advanced initially - yet to try some others.

    Tried it and I like it.
    I have a friend who might improve her sight picture. the only problem I had with the pistol was seeing the front sight. Black on black was hard to see. Old eyes I guess.

    dpesec - try the 15 yard advanced - good light and easy sight picture.

    Challenge there is to get sighted enough - getting foresight set up in rear - and then if not quite aligned allow for slight aim adjustment. It could I think be of use to newbies re getting good sight picture in mind.

    Dang - this thing is really fun!!

    This was 15 meter 30 shot advanced pistol - with admittedly the ''oscillation'' setting cut back a bit but still kept. Means having to sometimes aim off because sight picture not 100% - plus I had made some sight adjustments.

    This was my best so far - a 96! This is actually quite addictive - and frustrating too when with say 8 or nine good shots, you ''throw'' one because of releasing mouse button too soon. Great flash stuff this is - not even IIRC quite 100K in size, amazing.

    While it's more realistic than any computer "game" I've ever seen, all it really measures is how well you can use a mouse.

    I found the advanced pistol course downright bizarre... I couldn't make sense of it but I am tired.

    Did acceptably well on my first try with the revolver getting 47, and then redid for a 54, got 87 out of 100 with the rifle at 15m.

    Neat but, ehhhhh.

    Some truth in that Euc because I think too that for us, where we know instinctlively what sight pic we need, there is no barrier.

    For newbies who need to get used to correct sight pic I think it can be useful plus - where I aquired a sight picture with an asymmetry, then I knew how to aim off to compensate - again something quite useful perhaps for newb's to understand.

    Like any sim' it ain't ''real'' but I did think it was a clever piece of prog design and has some value - certainly for me a serious fun time-waster!

    That advanced BTW - you need to try again when fresh - there are parameters to set up - including sight adjustments, the degree of oscillatory ''wobble'' and also the sight pic aspects too. Play a bit and you'll find it is less daunting.

    What I did find challenging and even useful - was speeding up - and managing to get sights on target way quicker. ''Snapshot sighting'' shall we say.

    Perhaps you can tell I have still had some more fun with this! Cheap ammo that's a plus!! Oh and no gun cleaning

    Ok well - tried the 25 meter advanced pistol deal - and again wound down the rather extreme oscillatory setting but it still moves around. Quite a challenge and I guess if I really went mad on ''playing'' (this darned thing!) I'd get a decent score.

    Anyways - here was last result.-

    I've found that the modern video games that actually give iron sight pictures work as well and are a heck of a lot more fun. :)

    P95, that thing makes me look like I have never seen a pistol before. I will have to keep practicing. However, I got pretty good at point shooting with the 1911 on Medal of Honor.
